It’s a great feeling,I’ve been close for the last few games and it’s a dream come true. I was bit emotional. It’s a huge honour and one I am extremely proud of.
I knew it was a big moment and just picked my corner and put my foot through it. To be the record scorer before the age of 30 is nothing I could have imagined.

the roof of the net.
His maturity has impressed me, the way he’s accepted the captaincy. He’s still out there working as hard as the 19-year-old making his way in the game.
